Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs striker Siphelele Mthembu believes he deserves his new role in the first team after struggling for game time last season.

The 28-year-old attacker has had an up-and-down career, having begun with Amakhosi before failing to impress at arch rivals Orlando Pirates. He then had spells with Bloemfontein Celtic, Golden Arrows and Platinum Stars before moving back to Chiefs at the beginning of last season.

However, he seemed primed for the exit door once again after starting only one game in 2014/15, but has found a new lease on life this campaign under head coach Steve Komphela.

"Everything happens for a reason. I have been here before and I have played for other teams as well," Mthembu told Soccer Laduma.

"Everything I have achieved at the different teams is because God has planned it to happen.

"It's not for me to say I deserve it or not, but if the team gives me the chance to play for them, then that means there is something they see in me.

"For me it's just to do the job that I have been given and follow the coach's instructions."
